Materials Used:
watercolors
watercolor paper (11 x 14 inches)

Reference Used:
Veiled04 [link] by Odessa11stock

NOTE: For the slightly tidier version of this painting (for viewing or purchase as a print), please see Virgin Mary - print [link]

I am also an artist and have painted the Virgin Mary more than any other pieces and she has sold over and over. THIS is the most stunning painting of her I have ever seen and I am completely captivated by it. You have captured her so beautifully and uniquely. I had to share that with you :)

I like the pale colors.  For some reason, that is a rarity in religious art.

Many thanks and I have to agree with you on the standard color pallet for the subject matter

Why is her name Virgin Mary? She's obviously not really a virgin, hello people... Jesus is her child.
